A warning regarding the rather steep access to the lane from the main road - with a loaded car very easy to 'ground'

Reply from Classic Cottages

We're so sorry to hear that you had some access worries - we're not sure where the steep section was, as it's not something our Property Manager has encountered on her visits? There is a slight downhill slope but this isn't overly steep. We'll check it out again, but of course would also say that the beautiful little Dartmoor lanes will be a little more rugged than the bigger roads. Tanya, Customer Support

More kitchen equipment than my own kitchen! Super cottage in a blissful setting. Mattress topper and bed linen was gorgeous. Shower was excellent. Three ensuites is obviously a bonus too. Beds very comfortable. Location was perfect for Tavistock and beautiful with the water running through so close to the cottages.

Thank you.

Excellent property for a holiday with 6 adults. Plenty of room to sit and relax with a well equipped kitchen.
Location ideal for exploring Dartmoor but within reach of Plymouth and Exeter for those rainy days. Helpful but not intrusive hosts. A bonus with beautiful grounds with a stream to sit beside.

Highly recommended place to stay at. The owners are very helpful. A lot of spots are in good reachable distance, and definively a good starting point for walks in the Dartmoor. We definitively will stay at Ida Cottage when we are in this area again.

This was the ideal location to explore Dartmoor and then come back to the cottage which was so relaxing. The owners too were very attentive and made our stay really enjoyable.
